OK, maybe they are only concepts, but a couple of these things could almost get my fat butt back on a pedal bike........

I think it's exciting. I may not necessarily go for any of these exact designs, but it is great to see designers trying out new takes on this mature technology.

Of course, Norfolk is the home of Mike Burrows, cycle designer extraordinaire.. who created this delight for the 1992 Olympics, on which Chris Boardman won gold in the 4000m persuit.

The man himself who designed said bike:-

*Somewhere* on my computer I have photos of bike ride where we all ended up in Mr Burrows's workshop, which is truly a cavern of delights.

The Olympic champ is Simon Richardson, who won two golds and a silver at the Beijing Paralympics and he's one of the nicest chaps you could ever wish to meet (and his wife, Miranda, is a lovely lady). He's currently making the long & slow recovery from a crash in 2011 where an idiot in a motor hit him at speed, on a clear day, & left Simon in a coma, 17 days in intensive care, then on to a high dependency unit, with multiple fractures to spine, pelvis, breastbone, a detached lung and deep cuts to his legs. He was going to be in the 2012 Olympics, but the crash put paid to that.

While those bikes loo cool comfort when riding doesn't look likely. Thanks for the pics tho. WAFF so sorry for your friend. I think we have it bad but cyclists have it worse. I have some friends you ride and i feel sorry for them. Very dangerous. I was scooting back up the coast once and saw these 2 idiots in a truck and one of them tried to push the guy over as they were riding by. Wha? emoticon Stuck his hand out the window and thankfully he wasn't hurt. When i caught up to the cyclist i asked him if he was ok and he goes "it happens all he time". Well i remembered the plate number and asked a friend to look them up when i got home. One phone call and it seems our ass wipes were riding in a non insured truck without a DL and were wanted. 8) They got the truck taken away and were carted off to jail. 8) Hopefully they won't think it's fun to do that anymore.
